[liberationtech] Rallying Point at ContactCon

It's disappointing that a conference ostensibly about social media activism and liberation has a registration fee of $250 with no (apparent) scholarships available. There will be a lot of voices of a lot of people working in this space who will be unable to make it to New York and pay a fee of that level.

If you're in touch with the organizers, Adam, it might be worth raising this point.
